Democrats have subverted basic standards of justice

Democrats’ New Anti-Gun Laws Are Also an Attack on Due Process

Democrats' New Anti-Gun Laws Are Also an Attack on Due Process
The notion that certain Americans are pre-emptively guilty of wrongdoing, whether there’s any corroborating evidence to back up an accusation or not, isn’t reserved for conservatives who happen to be in contention for a Supreme Court seat. In the hierarchy of progressive values, due process is a bottom dweller.
Over the past decade, you could see the illiberalism evolving on college campuses, where Democrats subverted basic standards of justice. It was the Obama administration that demanded schools judge cases of alleged sexual assaults under a “clear and convincing evidence” standard rather than on a “preponderance of evidence” standard, allowed accusers to appeal “not guilty” findings and permitted the meting out of punishment before any investigation was even conducted, among other big problems. Democrats are simply shepherding those corrosive standards into the real world.
Another area of American life where we continue to see egregious attacks on the presumption of innocence is gun ownership. You might remember that a couple of years ago, Democrats engaged in a much-covered congressional “sit-in” to support legislation that would have stripped Americans on secret government watchlists — hundreds of thousands of people who had never been accused, much less convicted, of any crime — of their constitutional right to bear arms.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, in fact, proposed legislation that would have restricted not only American citizens on faulty watchlists but anyone who had been on any watchlist at any time during the previous five years and anyone who had traveled to select Middle Eastern countries. Apparently, Democrats believe limiting the number of refugees from Syria is unconstitutional but explicitly restricting the constitutional rights of Syrian immigrants here legally is just fine.
Then again, the entire effort was a frontal attack on about half the Bill of Rights. At the time, even the American Civil Liberties Union, which has increasingly turned away from its guiding principles, argued that policies based on flawed terror lists would undermine civil liberties.
In much the same way they are attempting to sink the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation, Democrats relied on theatrics, bombastic rhetoric and a compliant media, which framed the issue exactly how they had hoped. You can imagine such bills will reappear when they’re back in charge. Until then, though, Democrats have been doing some gun grabbing — and I don’t mean it figuratively — on the local level.
California, a state that already features the strictest gun control laws in the country, just enacted a law that raises the allowable age to buy a shotgun or rifle from 18 to 21. The United States might be willing to hand weapons to young men and women who volunteer to protect their country, but Gov. Jerry Brown doesn’t believe those young men and women should be able to protect their own property or families.
An even more outrageous new law bans Californians who’ve been hospitalized more than once in a year for mental health issues from owning a gun.

THE PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST PARTY

         The Liberal Democrat Party (AKA The New American Progressive Socialist Party)

By Capt Joseph R. John, September 24, 2018: Op Ed # 403
The below listed1944 quote by the 6 time Presidential candidate of the Socialist Party of America, Norman Thomas, is an accurate prediction that today’s Liberal Democratic Party (AKA The American Progressive Socialist Party) will support Socialism:
 “The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism.  But under the name of Liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist Program, until one day, America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.  I no longer need to run for the Socialist Party of America, the Democrat Party has adopted our platform.” 
 Presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, and Johnson would not recognize the actions, policies, and leadership of the once honorable Patriotic Democrat Party.  Today’s Democrat Party leaders do not support the US Free Enterprise System, that built the most effective economic engine in the history of mankind, nor do they support a Republic governed by the US Constitution. The Democratic Party has  been compromised by radical zealots who support a “Progressive” Marxist philosophy; they’ve taken control as explained below.  
 In the 2000 Presidential election campaign, a coalition of Radical Leftists, “Progressives”, Socialists, Marxists, Communists,  and Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups, who do not support or protect the US Constitution, joined forces to defeat Texas Governor George Bush; they were unsuccessful in a hard fought campaign, the conflicts that resulted in that campaign linger to this day.
 Americans must be informed who “Progressives” are.  The “Progressive” philosophy was created in the 1840s  by Karl Marx and German Philosopher George Wilhelm Hegel.  Their “Progressive” Marxist philosophy can be summarized by a simple statement “Everything is formed by the process of change.”  Since the 1960s, left leaning public schools teachers and radical college professors, have adopted the “Progressive” Marxist philosophy, and  have been indoctrinating their immature American students in Marxism. 
 Radical teachers and professors have been seeding doubt in the minds of American students about the relevance the 231 year old US Constitution.  By teaching students that although the US Constitution was compatible and relevant to govern when adopted by Congress 231 years ago, but because it has remained relatively unchanged since 1787, with only 27 Amendments, it has not been in “the process of change” to remain effective, “Progressives” believe the US Constitution is no longer current to bed able  to govern the United States.  
 Public School teachers and college professors, who identify themselves as “Progressives”, have been teaching students, that the US Constitution is no longer relevant and current to govern; they encourage their students to accept Socialism.   Socialism is an economic system where everyone in the society equally owns the factors of production; it promotes support for the collective.  Socialism does not promote individual success, or the “Inalienable right of man” that the Founding Fathers emphasized in the US Constitution, and gave  to posterity.  “Progressives” don’t support being governed by the US Constitution, they support Socialism and the Marxist philosophy.    
 In the 2004 Presidential election campaign, that same 2000 radical left coalition, strengthened by many more student who had been indoctrinated in the “Progressives” Marxist philosophy, by support from La Raza, the Socialists Party of America, and financial support of George Soros’ Pro-Communist “Open Society Foundation”; they again tried to defeat President George Bush, but they fell short.   
 In 2008 Presidential election campaign, the same 2004  radical left coalition that tried to unseat President Bush in 2004, was further strengthened by the Weatherman Underground, Black Lives Matter, Micha, the Revolution Communist Party, the New Black Panther Party, the Nation of Islam, Answer, Antifa, The World Workers Party, the National Action Network, Any Means Necessary, Act Blue, Casa de Maryland, Ultra Violet, Color of Change, Indivisible, SIEU, and the Progressive Unity Fund.  Five days  prior to Barrack Hussein Obama’s election, he said “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
 For 8 years, the left of center liberal media establishment, covered up the Obama administration’s “Progressive” Marist philosophy, and the hid the makeup of the radical left coalition that elected Obama’s  from American citizens.  The liberal media establishment promoted the “Progressives” Marxist philosophy, as an forward thinking philosophy, only designed to improve government. 
 Immigrations Laws passed by Congress weren’t enforced, the Social Experiment On Diversity weakened the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces, revised fake US History books were required to be used in the “Progressive” Common Core curriculum in order to obtain educational financial aid to the states from DOE, new & dangerous Rules Of Engagement resulted in heavy casualties in Afghanistan, heavy taxes coupled with new oppressive business & environmental  regulation crippled the economy, oppressive identity policies divided Americans by races, religion, and gender, law enforcement officers was repeatedly vilified and attacked.
 The same coalition that re-elected Obama in 2012, campaigned for Hillary in 2016.  That radical leftist coalition was joined by Obama’s “Organization For Action”.  Millions of millennials who had been indoctrinated in the “Progressive” Marxist philosophy, cast more votes in the 2016 primary elections for the Bernie Sander’s Socialist campaign, than for the combined Clinton Democrat and the Trump Republican Campaigns.  The “Progressive” Marxist indoctrination that continues in public schools and colleges today, is projected to result in increased millenniums support for Socialist candidates in the 2018 midterm elections, their numbers will increase in 2020.  
 Over the last 25 years, the left of center liberal media establishment has covered up the dramatic shift in the Liberal Democrat Party to the left, and how it was being aggressively radicalized by Leftist and Marxists inserted in the Democrat Central Committee during the 8 years of the Obama administration, and how the “Progressive” Marxist philosophy was instilled and adopted by the Democrat Party.
 Obama selected Tom Perez as Chairman, and Congressman  Keith Ellison (D-MN) as Deputy Chairman of the Democratic Central Committee.  They are both radical Anti-Semitic, Pro-Muslim Brotherhood, and “Progressive” Marxists party leaders.  By selecting Perez and Ellison, Obama put the Constitutional Republic under siege “Within The Wire”, and continued to drive the Democratic Party toward Socialism, knowing that Socialism is Marxist inspired, and that for over 100 years, Socialism has never worked in any country.
 Tom Perez was Obama’s radical left Labor Secretary.  He has a long history of anti-white views, including making the declaration that “White people should not be entitled to protection under the Voting Rights Act.” Perez was the longtime leader of Cas de Maryland, a militant Communist, pro-Illegal Alien rights group.  When Perez was the leader of Casa de Maryland, Hugo Chavez, the Communist President of Venezuela, and protege of Fidel Castro, was sending Perez $1 million each year, while directing Perez to use those funds to keep the US Southern Border wide open, to allow Iranian Terrorists, and Cubans & Venezuela Communists to enter with Illegal Aliens.
 Tom Perez previously served as Assistant Attorney General, under Attorney General Eric Holder.  In 2008, he dropped charges filed against New Black Panther Party thugs, armed with clubs, who were intimidating white voters trying to cast ballots in Philadelphia.  He supported Holder’s policies of refusing to enforce US Immigrations Laws.  In the “Fast and Furious Operation”, he supported Holder’s massive illegal sale of weapons to Mexican Drug cartels, resulting in the murder of US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.  Perez supported Holder’s refusal to allow an investigation of massive voter fraud charges that were filed during the 2008 and 2012 Presidential elections.  Those actions, led Congress to vote Holder, as the first Attorney General in 240 years, to be held “In Contempt of Congress.”
 Ambassador Armand Valladares, the former US Ambassador to the UN for Human Rights, identified Perez as a racist who hates the Bible, and is Anti-Semitic.  He stated that Perez’s goals are to destroy the US Free Enterprise System, the Christian Society of the US, and wants to turn the US into a Marxist nation. 
 Six term Cong Keith Ellison, the Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee is Anti-Semitic, Pro-Muslim Brotherhood, has been openly supporting  ANTIFA on the Internet, and is a member of the Nation of Islam; he is currently running for Attorney General of Minnesota.  As a member of the Muslim faith, Ellison believes in Shariah Law, and stated that he does not respect the US Constitution, because “Its wording was inspired by the Bible.”  For many years, Ellison has been working very closely with Louis Farrakhan, the rabid Anti-Semitic and anti-white leader of the Nation of Islam.  For over 10 years, Ellison has been closely associated with CAIR and The Muslim Brotherhood International Terrorist Organization; they paid for Ellison’s pilgrimage to Mecca in 2008.
 Ellison declared himself a supporter, ally, and defender of Communist Terrorists,  He organized a fundraising event for Communist Terrorist, Sara Jane Olson, a member of the Communist Movement, Symbionese Liberation Army.  Ellison defends Joanne Chesimard (AKA Assata Shakur), who is wanted by the FBI for murdering a police officer, and is is currently opposing extradition from her safe haven in Communist Cuba.  For many years, Ellison has been close to the Communist Party USA—even holding fundraising events in the home of Erwin Marquit, The Chairman of Minnesota’s Communist Party.  
 The Democrat Party continues to ignore and refuses to investigate live-in girlfriend, Karen Monahan’s, repeated accusation that Ellison sexually harassed and physically assaulted her, over a 2 year period.  Karen’s son, Austin Monahan, wrote on a Facebook Post that Ellison abused his “mama”, and that he watched a video of Ellison dragging his mother out of bed by her feet, screaming and calling her a F______ Bitch, and telling her to get the F___ out of his house. 
 The refusal by Democrat Party to investigate Ellison assaults is an example of the Democrat Party’s double faced approach to sexual abuse.  Compare it with the 36 year old groping allegation against Judge Kavanaugh by a Resist Trump Activist photographed in a pink hat during one of her many Never Trump street demonstrations.  She said the groping happened in an unknown location, on an unknown date, in an unknown year, and said there were 4 witnesses, who all said it never happened at all.
 Ambassador Valladares stated that “The  two leaders of the Democrat National Committee are both racist, Anti-Semitic, ignore the US Constitution, and ignore the US History.”  Ambassador Valladares said “They both have been allies of terrorists movements,  They have shared the hatred for the United States and its laws.  They complement each other in their hatred of the Bible.”  Ambassador Valladares said, “They wish to sweep away this American society, with ideological  street mobs, terrorists, communists, radical Muslims, and the scum of the country, whose goal it is to destroy the nation; with the complicit silence of the former Democrat Party leaders, they took possession of the party.”
 Prior to the 2012 Presidential campaign to re-elect Obama, for the first time in history, Perez and Ellison took “God” out of the Democrat Party Platform.  Perez and Ellison have been colluding with “Progressives”, Leftists, Socialists, Marxists, Communists, and the Muslim Brotherhood International Terrorist to oppose the Judeo/Christian philosophies, upon which the Republic was founded.  They degrade family values, and have been aggressively promoting the initiative to eliminate the gender of children on birth certificates. 
 Today’s Democrat Party is not the same Democrat Party of members of the Greatest Generation, or of my father and grandfather, it is strongly Socialist—-much worse,  If the Democrats take control of Congress, they would assault some basic liberties given to Americans for posterity by the Founding Fathers, liberties that are unique and vital to the survival and good order of the Republic,  like support for the 2nd Amendment, the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, The Free Enterprise System, closing the wide open Southern Border, Congress to actually obey the laws it passed, the American Flag and the Pledge of Allegiance, funding a budget to rebuild the hollowed out US Armed Forces, Freedom of Speech (not for Political Correctness), voter IDs to defeat massive voter fraud, etc. 
 Approximately 80 members of the 435 member House of Representative have formed a “Progressive” Democrat Caucus,  founded in 1991 by Bernie Sanders.  When the Pledge of Allegiance is supposed to be recited in Congress by all 435 members, the members of the “Progressive” Democrat Caucus  refuse to rise and participate in the Pledge.  There are plenty of photos on the Internet showing them sitting, while hundreds of members of Congress are standing with their right hands over their hearts reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
 The Democrat Party has moved dangerously to the far left in support of Socialism and Marxism.  If the Democrat Party (AKA the New American Progressive Socialist Party) takes control of Congress in the 2018 midterm election, Perez, Ellison, Pelosi, Schumer, Obama, and Valerie Jarret, will continue to try to “Fundamentally transform the United States of America” to a “Progressive” Marxist Socialist State, while trying to accomplish their oft repeated threat to impeach of President Donald J. Trump.
 All Americans who care about  the stability of Republic must vote against the election of radical “Progressive” Marxist candidates.
